Sculptor and master woodworker William D. Bosworth, “Buzzy” is the principal artist of W. D. Bosworth Woodworking and Sculpture. Since the age of 18, Buzzy has fulfilled his artful vision through sculpting and his self-taught woodworking talents. He has owned and operated woodworking businesses in and around his hometown of Newport, Rhode Island since 1975, and now, for the past 27 years, in Beaufort, South Carolina.
Buzzy originally developed his career as a pattern maker. Thirty-six years of fabricating functional objects has enabled him to reach a high level of expertise and quality in his art. His experience ranges from custom-designed furniture and cabinets, architectural millwork, reproductions of antiques, the construction of a 688 Class submarine mock-up facility, and classified work for the U.S. Navy. He develops prototypes for manufacturers and entrepreneurs who have innovative ideas, but no effective method of implementing them. Design services are also offered for those who have an idea of what they want, but need a little help with the fine details. Buzzy has transformed many an idea into tangible objects that are not only beautiful, but represent a wise investment.
Sculpting has always been woven amongst his woodworking endeavors. Some years ago, he extended his ambitions to sculpt on a full-time basis by founding a nonprofit corporation, the Environmental Art Association, which now fused with his woodworking business has become W. D. Bosworth Woodworking and Sculpture. A career as an artist and craftsman has proven that anything imagined can be created.
Buzzy’s newest endeavor includes the design and production of quality Mahogany garden furniture and his continuous passion for creating one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. A few of these pieces were highlighted in a 19 part series filmed for the Home and Garden Television Network called Modern Masters.
